Its easy to blame the negative effects of money, "on money" itself, although to hold a disdain for money rather than its subverted nature is too simplistic.

“Two persons having an equal amount of money or an equal quantity of goods, wares and merchandise, cannot both make money out of each other. What one gains the other loses. This rule is true of any number of persons, nay, it is applicable to all of the individuals of a nation. It is only when there is an increase of the original capital that there is a legitimate object of commercial pursuit. It is the same when the amounts of original capital are dissimilar, the proportions must be maintained or there is trickery or injustice, not to say robbery.”

– Charles H. Robinson, “The Destruction of Poverty” (1898), p127
